Mineblocks is a simple plugin that adds new constructs to Minecraft. Currently it only supports a drawbridge construct. A drawbridge can be constructed by placing an iron block and putting stairs next to it. Powering the iron block will make it moving all blocks on top of it (of the same type) horizontall opposite of the stairs (and vice-versa).


To build Mineblocks, you'll need a Java compiler and Maven 2.2 or later. Perform the following:

  1. Clone the Mineblocks Git repository: git clone git://github.com/SiebeTolsma/Mineblocks.git
  2. Run Maven to build: mvn clean package
  3. (Optional) Run convert.bat for Visual J# support: cd ikvm; convert.bat

Note that if you are using Visual J#, you will likely only want to clean once. After that, simply run mvn package to build instead.


Mineblocks welcomes contributions in the form of pull requests and issue reports. If you feel like working on Mineblocks, just fork the repository and start working. Once you're done submit a pull request.

Note that only pulls that adhere to the current coding styles are accepted. In short, put braces on a new line, use four spaces for indent, and at a minimum put a short Javadoc comment on each method.
